Before you read on, be warned that this might just be a very- very long post.
Now that i've given out the courtesy warning sentence, here goes.
I realize now that blogs, and facebook, and twitter are oh-so-accomadating in linking everyone with old friends, making it easier to get to know new people; and of course to 'window-shop' qualities, interests and photos (admit it. u stalk certain peoples pages too! ahah!) of others. Knowing all this, said companies have come up with private settings where we get the privellege and right, to choose whom we allow into our midst.
Do we judge what people potray on their pages? what words and shout outs their tweets say? what photos they put up?
the simple answer is, yes..- we do judge. The only difference between each person is whether or not they keep their judgement and opinions to themselves; or choose to do something about it.
My personal opinion is, everyone has a right to do their own thing, be their own way and discover themselves. Yes, i will think certain things about you, or i will have a thought of what you potray but i know its none of my business. Misinterpretations are a common thing as well, so i know that liberation and freedom is key. But different types of keys.
I am a person who values my privacy. My right to keep things the way i have always kept them.
I don't consider myself someone important. But i forget.e
I forget who my father is.
I forget who he used to work for.
I forget how dirty politicians can be.
I forget how keeping up appearances is something you may have to live by.
I am 25 years old.
The illusion of freedom and independence does not sit well on me.
The desecration of my privacy as well as the privacy of my family is not a light matter.
To ruin a man, a family man with images of their children living free, but misinterpreted as something else? photoshopped to show indecency? i am apallaed. speechless and full of hate.
Allah knows everything. The good, as well as the bad - and we will all be judged.
You shall get yours as well.
That, i can promise you.
